    I'm running ADW launcher. I'm still onDL09. I haven't updated anything. Just rooted and backed up. Everything was fine before I deleted all contacts, to get rid of duplicates on phone. (I noticed that fb was having problems but my contacts were all there so I didn't care) Synced up with google and contacts are back. still no FB tho.

    sounds like you probably deleted your FB contacts from your phone too, did you try removing your FB account (from your phone) and then re-adding it?

    still nothing.....uninstalled, did a battery pull, then reinstalled it. now at least the sync is working...... but the fb contacts are still not in my contacts list.... maybe it was never meant to be!

    What mike said +1. A more detailed explanation is that there are several components in touch wiz that are vital to SNS, which allows facebook contact sync if i'm not mistaken. If you load something like blackhole rom it mentions at least one thing i'm sure of that is required for facebook sync. It might be the stock messaging app but I can't remember for sure. Anyway, hope this is at least educational if not necessarily helpful.

    that's not completely true... with 2.2, the FB app will sync your contacts for you and adds a FB account to your "Accounts and Sync" settings. the icon looks slightly different from the SNS one that came with touchwiz.

    open up facebook and go to settings=>Sync Contacts

    the only bad thing about this is that if you have friends with slightly different names in facebook (some friends don't like to be searched on fb so they change their last name or something or have some other bogus name), it won't sync properly with them.

    no way! so all I have to do is switch back to TW, sync, and then I can switch back to ADW. you guys are great! I'm such a noob!


    I'd LOOOOVE to get froyo leak....but afraid... this is alll sooooo new to me. I've had a blackberry for 8 or so years....so its a big change!

    I was having this problem when I flashed dl30 blackhole. I resolved it by uninstalling the facebook app, removing the account from the phone, and reinstalling via market

    yea, I like having pics for all of my contacts too, pretty much the only reason I sync the contacts. I haven't used syncmypix at all, but with the facebook app, you can't manually sync contacts. at least I haven't figured out how yet since it doesn't seem to be the same as with sns
